Complete packing system for natural stones

Recently HAVER & BOECKER carried out a pilot project in Kaisheim/Bavaria at the Gandl Natursteine GmbH company. It was the first time a HAVER-FFS machine was used for filling natural stones (Fig.). HAVER FFS Alpha is the heart of the complete packing system. Material feeding is done by a heavy conveyor, followed by washing of the stone. At the end, there’s a robotic palletising unit with film packaging, which includes online printing and a complete pallet gathering lane. The challenge faced in this system was to generate a concept and a functionality that allowed the fully automatic filling and packing of fine sand, pea-stone, fine gravel and coarse natural stone (up to 60 mm) via selectable sort adjustment. With it, there’s comprehensive film and bag size selection that allows the filling of various premium quality products into transparent film packaging.
